Massage can be a natural tranquilliser. It has been used in virtually every culture throughout history to relieve aches and pains, unknot tense muscles, and help the body-- and the mind-- to relax. There are several types of the massage, but the most popular are Oriental massage and Swedish massage. The chief difference between them is that some of the strokes in Swedish massage are designed to stimulate a rather than to relax the body.

It is unfortunate that many people who might benefit from massage never try it, dismissing it as a specialised treatment for athletes or disabled people or as an unjustifiable indulgence. If you think this way, you are missing out on something enjoyable. Any one can learn to give massage. It is a simple extension of warm human care and touch.

Professional masseurs and masseuses offer the benefit of both skill and experience. They should be trained in anatomy and physiology so that they can identify muscles that are in spasm or painful knots that have built up by misuse of the body. Experienced professionals generally understand the requirements of various body types and are able to choose strokes that the beneficial for the individual. During a typical one-hour session the routine builds subtly in intensity and then subsides.

SPACE

"It scares me," said Jack Hills, an astronomer at New Mexico's Los Alamos National Laboratory. "It really does." He and the rest of the world had good reason to be worried. Astronomer Brian Marsden, at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics had just announced that a newly discovered asteroid 1.6 km wide was headed for Earth and might pass as close as 48,000km in the year 2028. "The chance of an actual collision is small," Marsden reported, "but not entirely out of the question."

An actual collision? With an asteroid of that size? It sounded like the stuff of science fiction and grade-B movies. But front-page stories and TV newscasts around the world soon made clear that the possibility of a direct hit and a global catastrophe well within the lifetime of most people on Earth today was all too real.

Then suddenly, the danger was gone. Barely a day later, new data and new calculations showed that the asteroid, dubbed 1997 XF11, presented no threat at all. It would miss Earth by 1 million Km - closer than any previously observed asteroid of that size but a comfortable distance. Still, the incident focused attention once and for all on the largely ignored danger that asteroids and comets pose to life on Earth.

XF11 was discovered last Dec. 6 by astronomer Jim Scotti, a member of the University of Arizona's Spacewatch group, which scans the skies for undiscovered comets and asteroids. Using a 77-year-old telescope equipped with an electronic camera, he had recorded three sets of images. The digitized images, fed into a computer programmed to look for objects moving against the background of fixed stars, revealed an asteroid that Scotti, in an e-mail to Marsden, described as standing out "like a sore thumb."

   1. The world had reasons to worry because…………………….

a. it could come to an end

b. it would be hit by an asteroid

c. it might be hit by an asteroid

d. the astronomers had predicated a definite collision

 

   2. The news that soon came as a relief was that………………….

a. there was no asteroid

b. the asteroid would disintegrate in space

c. it would cross the earth at a safe distance

d.  it would be too small to cause harm

 

   3. The asteroid XF11was discovered when…………………………..

a. Jim Scotti observed the sky

b. Scotti saw it through a telescope

c. Marsden discovered it through the computer

d. Jack Hills observed the sky

 

  4. The astronomer, described the asteroid as standing out "like a sore thumb"

       because………………

a. it was not a pleasant sight

b. it was noticeable in an unpleasant way

c. it was threatening and ugly

d. it had become huge as it neared the earth

 

 5. The word in the second paragraph that means disaster is………………….

a. collision

b. dubbed

c. catastrophe

d. danger

Coded Messages

Arabic mathematicians made tremendous contributions to cryptanalysis — the science of decoding scrambled messages. Their interest stemmed partially from their religion.

The holy Koran contains revelations made by the Prophet Mohammed. The text contained dictated messages that the Prophet had received from the archangel Gabriel. However, these revelations were not necessarily placed in the order in which the Prophet had received them. To deduce the order of the revelations and place them in chronological context, Muslim scholars determined that some passages contained words coined more recently, and some contained words that were older.

Then, they counted the frequencies of words in each revelation, paying attention to the frequencies of modern and ancient words. Passages which contained a greater frequency of modern words were considered to have been written later.

In the ninth century, an Arab mathematician called Al-Kindi employed a similar technique to break encrypted messages — frequency analysis. Letters are ranked according to how commonly they occur. Then, the encrypted message is taken, and the most frequent letter appearing in the code is noted. The code is then compared to the language, and using the correspondence in rank, the encrypted message can be unscrambled. He described this in a book — A manuscript on deciphering cryptographic messages.

 1. The art of deciphering scrambled messages has its roots in………………

a. cryptanalysis

b. Arabic language

c.  religion

 2.  The Holy Koran documents the messages of …………………..

 3. Placing the text of Koran in a sequential order was done……………..

b.with the help of Arabic mathematicians

c. by using the frequency of modern and ancient words

d. by breaking the cryptic code contained in the messages

 

4.  Al-Kindi’s contribution has been acknowledged in the field of……..

a. encrypting messages

b. cryptanalysis

c. language analysis

d. preparing a manuscript

 

5. The word in the last paragraph that means ‘coding of a clear text’ is…………

a. deciphering

b. encrypted

c. revelation

d. scrambled

6. While reading a magazine you came across the following article

 

There is a growing lack of sensitivity and respect for our fellow creatures. There is talk about the food web and the energy cycles and ecological balance and how removal of any element disrupts the whole system, and how this can affect human beings too. What this approach lacks is the essential interaction with Nature and with other human beings. Indeed, in many environmental activities the opposite takes place.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You are an educationist and feel that Environmental Education imparted in schools, need reorientation. The stress should not be on preserving Nature for human use, but for protecting animals and plants for their own sake. Based on the information given above and ideas from the Unit Environment, write a letter to the editor of a national daily in about 120 words on the subject and give it a suitable title.                                                                                     8 Marks
